BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – The Integrity Group of the National Executive Committee (NEC), of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has formally endorsed the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the Party.
The NEC Integrity Group in the letter also presented members of its executive and Board of Trustees.
The APC Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee has been mandated to lead the ongoing reconciliation process to return the party to its progressive and lofty heights.
A statement by the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mr Yekini Nabena said that it is heartwarming that the majority of party faithful have adhered to President Muhammadu Buhari’s call to party members to withdraw court cases against the party.
The APC Caretaker Committee therefore called on others yet to do so to withdraw the cases in the interest of the party and also called on supporters, members and leaders of the party to support the committee by coming forward with any issues, grievances, disputations, differences for amicable resolution.
Nabena said; “”Governorship elections in Edo and Ondo states are forthcoming and we are poised to consolidate on our popular mandate. We call on party members to support and cooperate with the party in our preparations for these elections.
“We deeply appreciate our well-meaning party supporters, members and leaders who in their different capacities are seeking solutions to the contestations within the party.
“The party particularly welcome the intervention of President Muhammadu Buhari who as leader of the party has continued to meet with party leaders to address some of contestations that has beset the party recently.
“We assure all that our willingness and capacity to resolve any contestations within our party is not in doubt. Our constitution provides several internal disputes resolution mechanisms to address our disputations.
“We must strive to explore them when disputes arise. The task of keeping the party unified and strong is a collective one”.
